The Shadow by Shelley Munro
Publisher: Medallion Press
The cat burgular, called The Shadow is on her way to steal jewels and all goes well the women who she was going to steal from gets shot and dies. Lady Katherine has a run in with a guy but not just any guy, a cop! Right off the bat we can see they are atttracted to one another but can a thief and a cop have a real future together?
Lady Katherine is also looking for who raped and drugged her six years before this. Her rapist might even be her daughter's father and when she stumbles upon a picture of another girl who could be the twin of her own daughter, she is one step closer to finding out who drugged and attacked her six year before. In this dual storyline of looking for a rapist and a jewelry thief we get a great story. The characters are a lot of fun to watch as they try to figure out exactly what kind of relationship they have.
I really enjoyed this story, it had everything I want when reading a suspense story. A great plot, believable characters and a heroine who has a spark to her. The end of the book was quite unexpected and I love twists like this, especially when I don't see it coming.
A well written book, and I am definitely looking forward to reading more from Shelley Munro.
